Hurlburt Field's 1st SOW commander, Col. Slife, was recently presented with the Florida Department of Education and Florida Education Foundation's Commisioners Business Recognition Award. The award is given annualy to the most outstanding business partners in each Florida school district. The 2012 winner for Santa Rosa County was Hurlburt Field in recognition of the outstanding support they have provided West Navarre Primary.The men and women from Hurlburt Field have played a vital role in West Navarre Primary school's journey towards excellence and our desire to provide state of the art technology opportunities. 

 

Our alliance with Hurlburt Field has provided material and human resource support that consistently  contribute  to our high student achievement history. In days of shrinking budgets, the material support we have received from Hurlburt is priceless. Approximately 75% of our desktops (250), 99% of our laptops (120), 75% of our lazor printers, 35% of our keyboards and mice, 8 LCD projectors, 3 LCD replacement bulbs, 3 bulletin boards, numerous bookcases, over 25 VGA cords, and approximately 50 ergonomically designed chairs for our staff  have all been donated by Hurlburt Field. In addition, the 505th Control Wing purchased Air Force approved software to wipe hard drives in order to donate working laptops to our school.The Air Force policy requires that hard drives be wiped or removed.  Airmen and women delivered, unloaded, and helped set up computers throughout the school, moving old computers and replacing them with donated computers, and changing CRT monitors with flat.  After set up the IT staff was available to lend IT support when needed.The educational experience of the students at WNP has not suffered in these days of budget cuts because Hurlburt Field sees the needs that that might go unmet, and fills in the gaps for us.

 

Following are the specific commands at Hurlburt Field who have partnered with WNP.

FLORIDA Standards

2013-2014 was a wonderful year for students, staff and parents at WNP. We are looking forward to an equally successful 2014-15 school year.  This year, Florida has fully phased in Common Core State Standards (now called Florida Standards).  Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade classes will all have standards-based report card grades (no letter or number grades on the report cards) and student work products and standards information will allow our parents to see the impact of these new standards. Our goal will continue to be to help students reach grade level proficiency based on these new standards and we will continue to make West Navarre Primary a warm, welcoming, and safe environment as we help our students reach the Florida Standards level of academic complexity.
